“The U.S. District Court judge who last month to make the most popular forms of the emergency contraceptive pill available over-the-counter with no age restrictions has denied the government’s request to stay his ruling while it’s on appeal.”
The Obama administration and the FDA are pulling for Plan B One-Step to be the only emergency contraceptive (commonly known as the “morning after” pill) available over the counter for only women 15 and over (with valid government-issued identification for proof of age, of course). Plan B costs $60 on average, which is a potential double of cost in comparison to its one- or two-pill generic counterparts.
Judge Edward Korman is fighting for all emergency contraceptives to be readily available to all women. He’s fighting for our reproductive rights. How about we give him some attention on man candy Monday?
It’s the return of the Bluth family…
Every once in awhile, I like to remind myself of things I would enjoy putting my hands on.
"Men and women are misogynistic for different reasons: men to marginalize women, and women to ingratiate themselves with the men trying to marginalize them. Neither one is justifiable, but one is oppressive and the other is a (bad) strategy to deal with that oppression. One thus sees that if the men who are misogynists weren’t, the women who are misogynists wouldn’t have any reason to be. Ergo, exhorting women to stop being misogynists so that men will stop gets it precisely backwards."
